Cee Ketpura continued her winning streak by beating Surabhi Kadam (Canada).  Cee was behind in the first game 8-12, but composed herself to win 21-14.  Cee won the second game 21-10.  This win put Cee in first position in her pool and earned her a spot in the main draw.

After her dramatic 35 minutes energy sapping match, Isabel Zhong lost her last pool play match to Jessica Leung (Canada) in two close games 19-21 and 15-21.  Isabel's 2nd in her pool earned her a spot in the main draw.  In the semis, Isabel tried hard but her tough match against Jessica Leung Isabel took a toll on her. She lost to Tracy Wong of Canada in the main draw 13-21, 17-21 and will continue to play in the consolation bracket.

The quarters was a breeze for Cee.  She  easily won her first match of the main draw (quarter finals) against Mariana Ugalde of Mexico 21-7, 21-13 in 19 minutes.  Cee will play against Tracy Wong of Canada semi-finals tomorrow .
